Dedicated to Summer.

Winter in Australia is not the same as in Europe, there is no snow and if temperature drops to 5C it’s considered cold. It’s still sunny and relatively warm most of the time. However, there are no more weekends spent at the beach, swimming in the rock pools and sipping cold cocktails in a bar with an ocean view. Fortunately, Australian winters aren’t long, only 2 more months to go and we’ll be back at the beach!

So today’s post is dedicated to beach nails! in memory of happy summer days and amazing Australian beaches, here’s our best 5 beach inspired nail designs:

The great thing about beach nails are the endless opportunities for creativity. Just pick a photo of a beach you like and find matching polish colours to re-create it on your nails. Plus, beach nails are relatively easy to do – first, do a quick gradient, then paint some palms or other patterns, seal everything with a top coat and you’re done! If you need some guidance refer to this beach nails tutorial from the SoNailicious book.

Have you ever been inspired by a beach to do something creative? We’d love to hear about your favourite inspirational places!

    how is the dance legend color called, which is on the pictures from the hobart docks nails ? you didn’t mention this color but is seems like you used it

    • The Hobart Docks Nails were done with Kester Black polishes. The only beach nails with Dance Legend is the Dusk Beach Nails. They were done with Kester Black Raspberry, Dance Legend Baby Blue and Dance Legend Light Lilac. Hope this helps! x

  • Just beautiful, each of them. Colours and themes. A harbour on the fingers …*sigh* I never manage manis like this, mine almost always turn out to be rather sketchy and fun(ny) (but thats how I like it best!) … well done ^^

    Our summer is here since yesterday and I guess it’s qute a lot like your winter…16 degrees Celsius and rain with a grey and only sometimes blue sky… :-\
    well, there’s hope :-P its just started!

    All the very best from Berlin! :-)

    • Thank you Moni! Now I don’t feel so bad about Australian winter. As someone who comes from Europe believe me I know that European summers can be quite cold and rainy. I remember once we had summer with only one sunny week (in 3 months!). I guess that’s why I decided to stay in Australia – it’s sunny and warm most of the time here! You should visit ;)
